My name is Hamdhoon Rashad and I hail from the idyllic island nation of Maldives. I am currently working at Maldives National Broadcasting Corporation (MNBC). I recently graduated with a bachelor of arts in journalism and broadcasting with honors from Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) in Malaysia. In the past, I have worked as a full-time journalist at Television Maldives (TVM), now known as MNBC, from 2003 to 2006.
I earned my diploma in communication from Taylor’s College, Malaysia in 2009. I also freelanced for two major international citizen journalism websites between 2006 and 2009, establishing myself as an aspiring journalist-slash-writer over the years. I have also interned for FHM Malaysia in 2008.
An avid reader of fiction and an ardent devourer of movies and TV series, my major writing interests include reviews (books and movies, obviously), pop culture, environment, travel, and contemporary lifestyles.
I started this blog as a platform to review my major addiction: books. It appears to be serving its purpose in full-swing or so I had like to think.
